New Enhanced Quick-Check from Dillon

Dillon's new Quick-Check tension meter is ideal for measuring the tension in cable guardrails, guy lines and overhead wires. It installs, measures and removes in seconds. Its highly accurate digital load cell, means it requires no look-up or correction tables.

With new enhanced features and functionality, the Dillon Quick-Check now collects and stores data allowing the device to be used in a variety of environments such as cell towers where it's not always safe to take notes. Also features a backlight for dimly lit areas. Dillon is also now offering the Quick-Check with an option to add 16 of the most popular pre-loaded tower wire calibrations.

The new enhanced features of the Quick-Check include:

  • Backlight
  • Data Collection (ideal for cell tower data recording)
  • Date and Time
  • Calibration Reminder
  • Up to 20 wire rope calibrations
  • RS-232 port
  • More intuitive display (shows unit of measure, wire type, and sheave calibrated to)
  • Carry case included

Product Applications

Quick-Check Tension Meter - Wind Turbine

Wind Turbines are used to produce electrical energy. They capture the wind's energy and convert it into electrical energy via a motor. By using the portable and rugged Dillon Electronic EDXtreme Dynamometer, the manufacturer will weigh the blades so they can send out a balanced set of blades for optimized performance. Also, a service technician can use the Dillon AP Mechanical Dynamometer to weigh equipment via a motorized hoist to prevent an overload to the hoist. Another application with the Wind Turbine is using the Quick-Check to check the tension on guy wires that support the wind turbine under high winds (not all wind turbines have guy wires).

Products used:
Quick-Check - 10,000 lbs
AP Dynamometer 5" - 1,000 or 2,000 lb
EDXtreme - 5,000 or 10,000 lb
